The Decorah Viking softball team hosted Waverly-Shell Rock at 5:00p.m. Thursday in what the two teams hoped would be a doubleheader.  But the rain started almost as soon as the game did and became heavier in the 5th inning, when the rest of game one and all of game two were postponed.

The Vikings scored in all four innings they went to bat, but walks and fielding mistakes allowed Waverly to take a 6-5 lead before the first game was suspended.

At this point, no makeup date has been announced.
